Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20 and create output which
    include title objects, pivot tables and charts. For all text in
    these objects you use the same font and font size. When you
    print the output to a printer you notice that the font size for
    the text is not always the same: the size of some text objects
    look smaller on the printed output compared to the defined size
    of the text in Statistics Output Viewer.
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    
    However, there are two issues here: 1) Charts render fonts
    differently than Tables and 2) Text renders fonts differently
    than tables.
    But all three are different objects. The chart object is
    different than the pivot table object and the title is a text
    object.
    Please note that the font sizes on charts won't match title and
    pivot table objects. That's functioning as designed. If this
    would be changed fonts in charts would be messed up.
    
    Font sizes in title object and pivot tables don't match exactely
    either since the title object is a Text Object. However, this
    small difference is related to Java code and third-party
    dependent.
    There are no plans that Java will fix this and unless Java has
    an HTML editor that supports actual font sizes Statistics
    development cannot change the behavior as well. As Java use HTML
    3.2 the font size is limited to 7 levels.
